‘When we were there [on the show] he was really good fun,’ she told the Table Manners podcast. ‘And things happened that made us sad and incredibly hurt – he was always like family, for years and years and years.

‘And it’s painful when those things end…I’m devastated about what happened but I feel talking about it is just uncool and you start pointing the finger.’ 

Sue has also claimed that The Great British Bake Off judge Hollywood passed off bread made by her as his own.

She said he would often use her mornings off from filming to craft the ‘hero bakes’ that Paul, 54, would then claim to have made himself.

Sue explained: ‘I made a lot of bread – I was quite good at making bread. A few of the Paul Hollywood hero bakes were made by me, actually, and my mates in the prep kitchen at the back.’

Sue went on to explain that she and Mel took it in turns to film, so when she wasn’t in front of the camera she would be in the kitchen.

She continued: ‘We would alternate, so if it wasn’t my morning to [film] I essentially had the whole morning off.

‘So rather than just go and watch television my favourite thing would be to go [bake] because I absolutely love food and cooking…

‘I made most crew lunches most days – they’d have pizza and brownies and curry and whatever else we could scrape together.’

They were replaced by Noel Fielding, 46, and Sandi Toksvig, 61, who will herself be replaced by Matt Lucas, 46, for the next series. 

Mel revealed that she had not watched the show since she left. She added: ‘I like to think that Perks and I created the tone for it. We wanted it to be a comforting watch and hopefully we established that.’

Last month the pair told how they quit on day one of Bake Off because the way it was made was ‘not kind’, with producers making contestant cry. But they returned after ‘stiff words’ with the production team.
